Start by stemming the corner to position yourself under a small roof. Pull a protruding block (the crux) and make a few high steps. Continue along the discontinuous finger-crack corner and jaunt up the dirty ledges. A few slopey holds may be mixed in.

Climb the face to the right of the start and use the crack in the small roof (without the corner) as a slightly harder variation.

This is a natural line that was likely climbed in the 1930s and the FA is long lost. A local longtimer told me he saw a woman short in stature run up this thing one summer night, hence the name. This placeholder-name is to avoid another "Unknown 5.6".


Left of the triangular boulder at the left end of the Parking Lot Wall. Look for the "L" tree growing out of this corner crack near the top.


Standard rack or top rope.
